of the healthcare promises the president has made have not materialized. barack obama well knows that the democratic party and progressive americans don't really care how he gets there. they just want more government control. the president has to deceive to make that happen, so be it. but most americans are not progressives and are not happy with mr. obama right now. a new "wall street journal" says the president's job approval rating is down to 42%. his lowest showing ever in that poll. when asked if obama care is a good idea. 37% say yes. 47% no. nevertheless, the president forms ahead. >> i don't think we should go back to dropping coverage for people when they get sick or because they make a mistake on their application. [ applause ] i don't think we should go back to the daily cruelties and inindignitiys and insecurity of a broken healthcare system. and i'm confident most americans agree with me. >> but that's not true. if most americans agreed with him, his approval rating would not be 42%. or am i wrong? so, again, it's not about the truth. it's about the imposition of a secular progressive s

can democrats show their constituents that obama care really isn't something to run away from? >> well, i think they're taking an honest approach to oversight and interested in getting answers and they want to see this website succeed and they want to see health care succeed and they want to see millions and millions of americans insured, which would be a very, very good thing. i think people like paul ryan need to be concerned too about how they're coming out looking after this. i think the idea of paul ryan sitting there concerned that somebody might think there's a subsidy out there that isn't for them, this is the same person that was interested in keeping the government shut down in an effort to repeal obama care completely. it's interesting that this is now his number one concern. >> so i'm just getting this hot note saying that senator lamar alexander, the senior republican on the senate health committee is asking that it's time for the president to ask secretary of health and human services to resign in reference to kathleen sebelius. again, today's hearing is a precursor to ka

of health care you get and that s why this is so bad. the democrats even admit to that. president obama has not admitted that to us yet, but here he read had me sit obamacare is a step toward what we call -- what he calls a single-payer health heae system. what does he mean? where the government pays and when the government pays for your health care, they get to decide what kind of health care you get and how much and etc. and they control what kind of doctor that you see and if you see a doctor in al and if you get a surgery or not and you're in control of you and that is why this is such a bad law and a lot of us have been fighting at every opportunity we can to get this lot different than the way it. lou: looks like obamacare itself has been a better disruptor than the republicans in assaulting the program, certainly. we are looking at a potentially potential disaster. this includes state taxpayers and massively so because the ratio was about 927. with the obamacare folks, and what they have put together. that is in terms of enrollment and we are looking at ratios of 10 to one nd that me
're going to talk about gop problems, but how big of a burden could obama care be for democrats in 2014? >> it could potentially be a very significant burden, chris. i imagine most of the people calling fe delay are -- for del are up for reelection. i think the political impact depends on two things. number one, the behavior of the republicans. if that was the case, that will shift attention away. assuming they don't do that, let's turn to substance. if there are many more cancellations, that's the big problem. if you look at the american people who have coverage really care about, it's have u lower cost increases. it would be because of other factors, that will politically be a real problem. >> the people asking for the delay for a year right now did nothing during the shut down. then they did the whole dog and pony show and they would not budge on that issue. we reenstatinstated and started government get. >> with their votes, there would have been enough to delay it. >> so the american people deserve better. they are doing the blame game and no one is getting down and doing business.
more surprising, the amount of leaks from s.s. obama. ones that portray senior democrats, including the president, in not such a favorable light. when "game change" came out, lost in all the drama about the mccain/palin campaign was the fact that team obama did not dish all that much. there was a game change for the second book. when it came to leaks, the white house was a veritable colander. president obama is depicted struggling sadly with debate prep and his advisors are described losing their patience with him. i just don't know if i can do this, the president says at one point, according to the book. on abc's "this week" george stephanopoulos seemed stunned the president wasn't upset at the amount leaked about him by trusted aides. >> i can only imagine what he's thinking as he sees all these details in this book. >> well, look, we are not the first white house to deal with leaks. every white house has dealt with it. i think we have been more leak-free than most and where we find them, we try to stop them. >> is he angry about this? >> the president is always frustrated about l

? those are very strong words from you, especially as an obama supporter and democrat. have you conveyed that directly to dr. rice, the national security advisor, or secretary of state john kerry in terms of your concern that there really isn't any sort of coherent strategy? >> well, i was waiting for this hearing to see whether i would hear anything that would indicate to me we had ambassador ford, who is a tremendous public servant, but whose testimony along with the assistant secretary of state in charge of the chemical weapons element and our a.i.d. administrator in terms of humanitarian issues for which there is great work being done in that regard, but the reality is i heard no comprehensive cohesive strategy, so i will shortly after i leave your program, going to be meeting with secretary kerry on iran. i intend to also pursue him on syria, because this is not acceptable. the committee acted in a way that gave the administration back in may the wherewithal to try to help the opposition in syria and also gave them the power that i think got us to this more successful point on chemi

what nbc news investigative correspondent lisa myers has been reporting, the obama administration and democrats, some, knew that under the affordable health care act, some americans who buy their own health insurance would not be able to keep the plans they currently have. congressman hoyer said, we knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage. when asked about the president's past statements that after the affordable health care act became law that people would be able to keep existing health insurance, congressman hoyer said, i think preciseness would have been better. i don't think the message was wrong. i think the message was accurate. lisa myers, found buried in the 2010 language of the law, an estimate that because of normal turnover, normal turnover in the individual insurance market, 40 to 67% of customers will not be able to keep their policy. developments comes as the head of the government agency in charge of the health care.org. the website has been grilled for hours. there have bee

the affordable care act was, quote, but for us democrats, obama care is a badge of honor because no matter who you are, what stage of life you're in, this law is a good thing. first, if you already have insurance you like, you can keep it. and i end the quote. i'd call this a red herring that misled voters, intentional or not. now, perhaps had you known that millions would lose their coverage, families would face financial disaster as one constituent recently told me or that the exchange rollout would be plagued by the multitude, multiple delays we have seen, you would not consider it such a badge of honor. the fact is, your words and those of the president, as he campaigned last year that if you already have insurance you like, you can keep it, seem to be directly refute ed by the millis of cancellation notices already sent to americans just in the past few weeks. whether your statement was inaccurate or as mr. hoyer said yesterday not precise enough, it does strike me that millions of individuals who by listening to speeches like yours voted, believing one thing, now found themselves without

the obama administration and the democratic party appeaplectic, t insurance is scared because of the individual mandate because the result will be to tear up their business model as you know and tear up profits. we're looking at the prospect here, if there isn't careful reasoning and a careful understanding amongst everyone here about a direction to head toward that we're talking about one-sixth of the economy that is now vulnerable because a bsite, as the president put it, didn't work because obama care itself is built now on what we see as a very, very faulty assumption and presumption because of the mandate that young people are going to sign up for health they typically do not need. these risks are very high. where are the republicans headed now, and what is the course you all will follow? >> well, we are going to continue to get to the bottom of this. you know, you pointed out one major issue here, and the cybersecurity issue, as you heard, that we're very concerned about that. you know, there are americans who are managing to get onto the website at this point at some ti

of the government shutdown and nonstop obama care fiasco and the democrats who are fretting about what is coming down the pike. >> coming back to the whole romney comments and keep the conversation on this. what the governor questioned, was the honesty of what the president said, like your drshgs keep your drshgs and like your plan, keep your plan. all of that coming back to byte him and will not let go, unless he has a serious change in direction? >> i think those questions need to be answered. a lot of americans are concerned. i am concerned about sticker shock. i will not defend. that it is not an act now. it is the law. so what are we going to do? we have to a mend it. i think we do need to delay the implementation of it. not deny but delay it and step back and examine what we got. >> throw months or a year, how long the delay? >> i don't know. i would like to talk about it because of so much going o. >> quickly to guy before we move on to breaking news, guy. governor romney said you haven't been honest until you are honest you will pay a big price for that. >> he could start being honest to

worried. i want to look at a couple headline where is democrats had and vented to obama officials. senator durbin said people are anxious and jeff merkley said i don't think there's confidence by anyone in the room. is there any way for democrats to back up and insulate themselves from might be or might not be backlash from the polls? >> i think they have plenty of time and i do not think that's necessary. i got hit hard coming home to arkansas for voting for part d of bush's medicare. i worked with the administration. we did our dog and pony shows with cms and hss folks and arkansas ended up being the top ten states for enroll lees for the prescription plans. it's hard to envision a health care plan for seniors without a prescription drug. it hard for us to see wing able to put our economy right if we continue to spend the money we do on health care, the percentage of our gdp and getting the same results we are. we have to start looking at how we'll make this thing work and come together and figure that out and i think that's what they are doing with the add minute stati -- administration
legislature as now senator jamie eldridge, a democrat, testified that he believes they should implement a universal medicare plan in massachusetts. that's single payer. that's what many people believe obama care would lead to on the federal level. what say you? >> well, it's funny. he's a great guy. he voted for romney care, supports obama care. then you do the math and he says all i wanted was single payer in the first place. that's what obama care supporters default to. they are watching the system collapse and the math doesn't work. in massachusetts we are the most expensive state in the country. want to be more expensive? be like us. it's 60 to 120 days for your first doctor visit. took me 60 days for my first appointment. it's so bad we have had three tax hikes since romneycare was implemented because the cost of state government health care exploding. 25 cents on the state dollar covered medical for us when romneycare passed. now it's more than 40 cents of every dollar the state collects paid out to romneycare. the system is breaking. >> the argument against it, we discussed it la

what's happening with obama care is already putting the democrats back on their heels. and the reports out overnight about the fact that the obama administration actually knew that maybe as high as 80% of people with individual policies would lose them, at the same time the president repeatedly said you can keep the policy you have if you like it, now you have to ask the question, when did he know it? what did he know? we'll ask that question of secretary sebelius tomorrow in the energy and commerce committee. these are issues of trust that the democrats are going to have to respond to when we go into this election cycle a year from now. >> do you have to campaign? does your republican candidates have to campaign beyond -- do you have to not look like you're rooting for failure? do you have to campaign on a solution that -- i mean, one thing the house republicans haven't had is their own health care plan to run on. >> right. >> i know paul ryan was coming up with one. is that the idea that you'll rally around what paul ryan is writing for january? >> well, first of all, two things. one
obama care is a bad idea. while 47% think it is a bad idea. suggesting that many democrats maybe seeing the republican side of things when it it comes to the aca. take a listen. you will see more democrats coming to the view that we ought to delay this. maybe there will be movements in crackses who are starting to see that who are recognizing that this is hard to defend with the constituents who are seeing the canceled policies and the insurance rate increases. >> is it not so much about defending it to their constituents, but explaining that you had a subpar junk policy that does not meet a mandated requirement of quality care in our country? basically, you were being boon doggeled to pay for something worthless? >> the insurer shifted all of the costs and risks of coverage on to you and you have to pay more and that in the new policy and more comprehensive policy, while your up-front premium may be more, your overall health care costs could lower. at the end of the day if you have a condition or a disease you are going to be paying less for coverage. >> the shame should be on the priv
clinton, the democratic ticket of the fall in 2011 with mr. obama's low popularity making reelection uncertain. aides reorganizing focus group sessions and polling. bill daly told the "new york times" that considering a campaign shake-up was simply due diligence. you have to remember at that point the president was in awful shape. so we were, like, holy christ, what do we do? but the lord stayed out of this one and biden remained on the ticket. today, the white house pushed back at the account. >> it's important to know that campaigns and pollsters of part of campaigns test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that. and had anyone brought that idea to him, he would've laughed it out of the room. >> and there's the issue with the political force off the ticket. bill clinton, as the "new york times" reports, the book says obama could barely endorse spending much time with his predecessor. mr. obama rarely contacted the former president but changes tuned after the midterm losses. aides thought a golf outing would make the two men cl
with the insurance they have and what obamacare -- president obama and the democrats are saying is that you may with lose your insurance, but we will give you something you like moore and the american people are saying but i like what i have and i don't want to take a risk that you'll put me into something i don't like. that's why the story that we have in the paper is so important. people are losing their treatment. it's about whether you get the kind of care that you need and i think that that is the fundamental problem is people are saying i like what i had before and i'm not so happy with what i have had now. bill: so you believe things will get worse as they progress? >> well, i must be wrong. and all of the criticisms that libertarians and sober people were making about obamacare for a very long time are proving true. the average family will save $2500 in what we are basically seeing as millions of people being enrolled in medicaid and very cheap insurance programs and they have no out-of-pocket costs. and a lot of people will get a free lunch, but the middle class are going to pay for it
try to run on obama care. it's a state that's traditionally leaned to the right. but i think the democrats are looking very strongly in there. we'll see what happens. in new jersey, chris christie is seen as a moderate by some, and he has participated in aspects of the affordable care act including the medicaid expansion. i just don't think when you go to the politics of it with all due respect to bill kristol's vision, i don't think the politics bear out that you can run on saying we have no alternative and we hate obama care in case, hey, you didn't notice that during the last election. it's a losing message for republicans, and we'll test that again tomorrow. >> bill kristol, is this a losing message to republicans? ari melbourne is a very bright guy left of center, bill. usually he makes a lot of sense, but now he's telling me this is a losing message to republicans. i find that incredulous. what's your quick take before i get to jimmy p.? >> well, we'll test it out both tomorrow and especially a year from now. i wouldn't say mitt romney ran against obama care nearly as m
of pennsylvania avenue will go, you're right, obama care stimps, see, that's ridiculous? >> ten democrats later on turned around and said the individual mandate should be delayed. ivities that's a whole different story. >> i believe currently that's a liability but could be an asset. when people find out they're paying a car payment oar we can't send our chied to collection. i think that they will remember this is obama care and republicans try to stop it. >> but see, that's exactly the point. if the republicans hadn't been horsing around with the government shutdown, the roll-out of obama care was horrible. obama care, the only thing less popular is the house republicans and senator cruz. >>> we're going to go to break. next, the other side of the presidential race. lots of americans hope hillary clinton will be their nominee. we'll get to the real question here. which republican party of the two we've been debating here could actually beat her? >> both of them.
